Throughout the Foundation Year, all children will learn a wide range of skills, knowledge and new vocabulary. Each term we will build upon these and revisit previously taught areas to help embed the learning for the children. Please take a look at our progression of skills map, which shows how we ensure children make good progress during their time in Foundation.
Please take a look at our book list below. These stories are loved, enjoyed and recommended by Mrs Lawrence and Mrs Riches.
Autumn Second Half
This half term our topic will be 'Winter Festivals'. We shall be exploring a variety of celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas through stories, creative activities, role play and class discussions.
This term we will also be learning about Remembrance Day and supporting Children in Need.
We shall be learning songs for our Nativity performance and retelling the story of Christmas. The children will enjoy lots of story times and we shall progress with our RWI scheme to support children's reading and writing skills. We are excited to begin Drawing Club, a fun story based writing club to engage children in mark making. Please see the link for more information on this.
Autumn First Half Term Topic
During the first half of the Autumn term our learning was themed around the children through our topic, 'Incredible You'. We spent time settling the children and getting to know them and their unique characteristics whilst building positive relationships. Continuous provision provide opportunities for the children to investigate and explore their new setting whilst getting to know each other. School behaviour expectations and routines were established through the daily rhythms of school life.
